[TIPS] - The world is flat!

The World is Flat!
So says Thomas L Friedman, the author of the book by the same title - a #1 book on the NYT Best Sellers List. This is a video stream of his speech. Why is the world flat? In short, "The global economic playing field is being leveled."
My advice to you is to start this video sometime when you're going to be online for a while, and let it run in the background and listen. This is something that your high school students should hear, too. This is THEIR world and I'll just bet this will enlighten them like NO OTHER speech they've heard to date. You, too. It's amazing how "flat" this world really is, and what events were directly or indirectly responsible for it.
